Donations Made
FDRS made 3 recent donations to UA for Dr Karen Herbst's research of fat disorders! The first one was to enable a patient database, the second for Dercum's Disease, and the third for lipedema research.

2015 promises to be an exciting year for research!

FDRS and LE&RN are offering 3 fellowships later this year on lipedema and Dercum's Disease. Although we think of them as adipose tissue disorders, the lymphatic system and adipose tissue are highly entwined.  LE&RN's site

We have our irons in the fire for two additional research projects.
We will see you soon!
